This video of firefighters rescuing a six-year-old boy stuck behind a wall in Eastern China has been bouncing around the Internet since at least yesterday.
The boy snuck away from his house in Lingbi County while his grandmother was busy with chores and somehow wormed his way into a six-inch space between two houses, state television reported.
Using an electric drill and hammers, firefighters smashed a hole in the wall and pulled the boy out.
I can’t recall running any similar rescues with children in the U.S. since starting STATter911.com more than five-years-ago. But we have shown you videos of animals stuck behind walls, including one last week from Los Angeles County.
Apparently, the way homes are constructed next to each other, this is a much more common problem in China. Below are rescue videos of other kids stuck in or behind walls.
